HP set to launch Android smartphone, maybe next week

HP’s tenure as a smartphone manufacturer has been largely disastrous. They began with Windows Mobile, and moved on to WebOS after acquiring Palm in 2010, which failed spectacularly. Now however, it seems that HP is going to get back in the game, this time with the world’s most popular handheld OS – Android.
